All of the angora babies have new homes. I'm always sad to see them go, but I'm happy with the people who bought them so that makes the letting go easier. Both of the does went to the same home, so they get to be sisters together. The new owner emailed me a few days ago with photos and told me they have personalities plus. She has named them Lucy and Ethel because of their craziness. She said they have already been to show and tell for three different classes at school.

This mess of bunnies is my first meat rabbit litter. They just hit six weeks old and are growing well. It's time to wean them from mama.
Yesterday, I was given a huge bucket of organic strawberries, so canning season started early this year. I put up (12) 12 oz. and (7) 8 oz. jars of Strawberry Ginger Jam today. It is so freakin' delicious! It has been ages since we had strawberry jam mainly because my strawberry growing skills are less than ideal, and I don't buy strawberries because I worry about the chemicals that have been used on them.
That's it for now, folks!
